Hello,

I looked over this code and had just a few nits; all pretty trivial.
Comments below.

Can this be declared static?

This is function? :)

Might you static inline this function?

Trivial, but this initialization really isn't necessary.

This may also be trivial, but why have place holder code when you could
simply set ecryptfs_ops.remount_fs function ptr to NULL? Besides...
wouldn't -ENOTSUPP be a better error code here? Maybe not.

Might you check IS_ERR on path?
